I find the use of tooltips very helpful, however, I am not seeing Capture tooltips when I place parts. Does the Capture application such tooltips? If so, how can I enable the tooltip display?
Yes, Capture does include tooltips for placing parts. There are two ways to enable or disableCapture tooltips. The first enables/disables tooltips through the Capture.ini file. The second enables/disables tooltips from your Command window.
To activate or deactivate Capture tooltips from the Capture.ini file, complete the steps that follow.
- Close Capture.
- Open the capture.ini file (located at <installation_folder>\tools\capture).
- Add the following entry:
[Place Part ToolTip] Enable=1
Note: Enable =0 deactivates tooltips, while Enable=1 activates tooltips.
- Invoke Capture.
To activate or deactivate Capture tooltips from the Command line using the PlacePartToolTip Tcl command complete the steps that follow.
- Open your Command Window, (if you do not see the Command Window, activate it using View > Toolbar > Command Window)
- Enter the following text into the Command line: PlacePartToolTip 1
Note: PlacePartToolTip 0 deactivates the display of tooltips and PlacePartToolTip 1 enables the display of tooltips.
